    Are you for real...? One baby photo comp- body image problems- oh please. My eldest (15) has no probs with his body and my 12 yr old is quite comfortable in hers- more so than what I was at their age (was bulimic and self harmed yada yada). It's not about the competitions, but more to do with self awareness and how they're raised.

    Yeah- completely from a baby competition.... (can't you just imagine that they would be thinking that they look too chubby in their chosen outfits...?)It's a photo comp, nothing more. If a kid's gonna get a complex, it won't be over that.

    Lol. Bonds are picking 6 finalists plus another 2 in the suits plus another 2 as peoples choice/facebook stars.

    This year must have dropped off a bit cause its down to about 28000 entries rather than in the 50k mark.

    Interesting to see peoples opinions on the whole thing. I put my bubba in. Hope she doesnt think she looks fat in the photo.. Hehe.

    I remember, It got pretty heated.
